I Am a Magic Carpet, Where Shall We Go?
My students need the Literacy Squares Carpet so we may have a designated area within our classroom for whole-class activities and discussions.
I teach second grade at a Title I school in Washington State where over 50 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. We live in a small rural community where many families struggle to provide the bare necessities. Some days even I struggle to comprehend the situations our students face at such a young age.
My students are great kids, who enjoy learning and sharing their real life connections with the topics we cover.
By creating a classroom where my students feel secure, they can focus on making important connections between new material and what they already know. I believe that all students can learn, and it's up to me to figure out how to reach and engage them in our learning community.
Since all students have different preferences when it comes to how they learn, I want to create a variety of different learning environments within my classroom. The addition of the Literacy Squares Carpet will create a new student-friendly, comfortable learning zone where my students can thrive. This will be where we conduct our morning meetings, create Venn diagrams comparing and contrasting different concepts, and solve math problems using different manipulatives.
A more casual setting will help my students feel more relaxed and present a low-risk environment where they are willing to actively participate in their learning.
The Hokki Stools will provide students who need to wiggle during the day a safe alternative to tipping their chairs back on two legs.
